Problem on 2.2.2 install



  • Hi
    Have P4 3 ghz
    4 Gb ram
    SATA HDD
    IDE DVD burner
    PCIE grafic card.
    2 Intel Gb Pci nic.

    Booting from live cd, setting up nic, and then type 99 for hdd install.
    Install run with no problem.
    At first boot from HDD I see:

    F1 pfsense
    F6 PXE
    Boot: F1
    \

    The \ have _ blinking under it.

    Pc is now "locked"  no furter booting and no activity on HDD.

    Any ideas what is wrong ?

    The live cd is running perfect, with acces to all funktions and remote via webconfigurator.

    Some of those early SATA controllers can be problematic especially if it's using some separate chip.
    Try the suggestions here: https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Boot_Troubleshooting#BIOS.2FDisk_Errors

  • Hello Again.

    I´m up running Thank you for help.

    It was the partitions size making the problem. Setting " /swap to 8 "      " / to 4 Gigabyte " added a new " /usr " on rest of the disk.
    Will pfsense use the /usr partition or is it waste now ?

    Either the packet or LBA adjustments have any effects.

    /Brian
